NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY PITTSBURG STATE UNIVERSITY

Student broadcasters upgrade to HD equipment

Pitt State fans at this week’s MIAA basketball tournament will get the first glance at new technology in the university’s sports broadcasting program.

With new high-definition broadcasting equipment, Pitt State will be able to display HD video footage and replays on the video board inside Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium.

“This is something we’ve never been able to do before, so it’s very exciting,” said Troy Comeau, director of broadcasting. “It’s becoming an HD world, and this is one step we’re taking to stay up to date with the latest technology.”

Comeau said the equipment will also serve as valuable learning instruments for the students.

“Whenever you get new equipment, it takes a little bit of training and practice to learn how to use it,” he said. “For our students, that’s all part of the education process.”

Having the new equipment in its repertoire gives the broadcasting program potential to broadcast HD programming on the university’s TV station, CAPS 13.

“We have some more upgrades we’ll need to make to go full HD on CAPS 13,” Comeau said, “but this is certainly the first step. It’s an exciting time for us.”
